mosquito killed my gtx 470 :( update: gpu died as of 3/3/2014 - Page 15

post #141 of 190

Hrm...

 

         Didn't know that could happen, really. Never encountered mosquitoes in a PC, but have encountered cockroaches. I had myself an old HP back from 99' and I lived in an apartment and at the time I lived there it became cockroach infested. Most ugliest creatures to have in a PC. Well, great job on baking the GTX 470. I baked an old EVGA 7800GT, and revived it three times. After that, I just stopped because it wasn't worth the hassle. IMO, sad story, happy ending. :)

i remember when i first got here in america, i was LOLing at my boss because he and his family was too afraid of a little spider crawling on the table, and i just literally picked it up, they were like WTH? afterwards i learned that american people aren't used to bugs, insects, rats, etc.

exactly. you can't really get those buggers out of your house/ they just keep coming. Im from Navotas whish is really the wettest part in manila so mosquitoes are more prominent here than any other place in the city.

lol ikr. im not really scared of spiders. when I was a kid we play with them and let them fight on sticks lol. cockroaches are a different story though. esp when they're flying I temporarily grow a vagina, scream and run around like a little girl lol
Last part is sigged.

You got unlucky frown.gif Good thing you got lucky after that!

Is it 68C oc'd?

no just stock settings. I don't really have the confidence anymore with this gtx 470. id prolly never overclock it again just to be safe frown.gif I don't want the extra heat to melt the solder again. I'm thinking of stressing it for 2-3 weeks prolly with folding@home maybe overclocked to 800/1600/2000 this time.. if it survives ima sell it dirt cheap and get a used gtx 570 for my htpc.

it really is a freak accident. should've taken a picture. it landed exactly on the smallest solder points on top of the pcb that's why it shorted. I've had my sig rig for more than 2 years and since day 1 my side panel has been open but nothing happened too. im not really forcing anyone to close their side panels. I've learned my lesson and I have fan filters now and both my htpc and sig rig is bug-proof now. I did notice airflow was severely compromised with the fan filter. dunno if fan filters are really like that or the silverstone one that I'm using sucks. maybeI should've gotten something better.
